Strapya World Star Wars

Since I am always on the lookout for Star Wars collectibles, I stumbled upon this website.

First of all, I fell in love with my GPS with built-in Darth Vader voice guiding me through the streets but I feel it’s sacrilege to have an R2-D2 soy sauce bottle or even the R2-D2 shampoo pump. Does George Lucas know this is happening?? On another note, I do love the idea of having a Silicone Ice Tray that can make ice in the shape of Han Solo in Carbonite. It will definitely be awesome to have a Frozen Han Solo floating around in my Margarita.
